Talkabout MH230R does not Receive or Transmit on channel, can just Transmit (only clicks when Recieve) when programmed 2 channels higher (i.e. all radios on 5-3, one is on 7-3)


Strange. Could it be any of the radios are from different countries? The channels are not worldwide. For instance, Canadian radios are on different frequencies than USA radios. They look identical.

Can't transmit signal. Only get a 2 second beep when I push the transmit button


You have a poorly charged or bad battery. It takes more power to transmit than to receive. Usually the first thing you lose with a low, bad or poorly charged battery is transmit.

Try a known good battery in the radio. This should solve the problem. If not, check your battery contacts, as you may have one which is bad or not making good contact.

Clean your contacts with a pencil eraser to assure good connection with the charger.

Best regards.

How do I unlock the channel on T5900? I want to reset to channel 9 and it's stuck on 4


According to the manual, you want to press and hold the menu button for 3 seconds. That will unlock the keypad so you can change the channel.

Issues with Motorola TalkAbout T5900 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio. Do they need FCC programing & licensing to operate? Because I can not get the to communicate with each other!


Yes they do.The thing about the talkabout is that they work according to the network area they are connected to and the number of the talkabout they are also connected to.So all you need do now is to take the talkabout to motorola shop so that they can confrigure it for you.

ONE SET WILL NOT RECEIVE.OR THE OTHER SET WILL NOT TRANSMIT


You need to verify you have the frequency, code and Qt filter set identically. Also, check your batteries to see if they are good.

Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T59xx_User_Manual_E.pdf

You should be able to set the radio back to a simple setting with the code and Qt filter shut off (zero), this would tell you pretty quickly if your radio will communicate. If they will not communicate with the frequency set the same, and the other features turned off, you have a battery or radio problem.

Best regards.

One radio not recieving


You need to check your interference eliminator code. It sounds like they are not set to the same code. Also, if your radio has a Qt filter, set it to zero.
